Thread: Battery will not fully charge.

Welcome to Help2Go!
How new do you mean by brand new? Most new laptop/PC's come with a 1 year warranty.
Are you sure the battery is making a solid contact with the laptop connections? Take the battery out and see if there is any dust that could prevent this.
Was the battery fully charged to 100% when you purchased the laptop? It is not uncommon for a laptop battery to drop down quickly during the first few charging cycles, but it should at least charge to 100% regardless.
If you still have issues with the battery charging to 100% I'd take it back to the store where you purchased the laptop and request a new battery. Batteries will drain even when not in use and you have no idea how long this laptop sat at the store waiting to be purchased.
